We have finished our first year in existence as a VHPA Chapter in the great state of ALASKA! By recognizing the pilots of Viet Nam and expanding our chapter to other Military and Alaskan pilots and crews we will work in conjunction with Our National VHPA. We are dedicated to the objectives of the VHPA and to the fulfillment of purpose: There is Pride in knowing WE FLEW!
Just had a wonderful evening with good buddies and a toast to our Friend, Don Bradford.
American Legion Post 1 put on a super dinner with steak and seafood. Hats off to Terry & Marilyn for all their hard work setting things up. Had 34 folks for this one and it is always a kick to chat with guys who know what a green tracer looks like! & the ladies, well got to have some beauty with us old guys! Linda Kau with Kathy & Kandis where their to present Quilts to John Splading, Ross Clement, Brian Kile, & Bob Wigen.
We also want to welcome our newest members ...... Welcome John Spalding and Gary Quarles
Brings our membership up to 47!
Our Veterans Museum Vietnam display is very nice, we invite all to go by and check it out! They could also use some volunteer help a couple of hours each month at the museum, so think about it! Thanks to Tim, Red and Terry for their volunteer efforts.
Membership dues for 2015 will be via a donation from our members. No set amount, what ever your feel you can give to help us stay strong. We now can accept larger donations to cover two years at a time! Keeping it simple!
